- Maintain unconditional positive regard for the client, which means that the coach is at all times supportive and non-judgmental of the client, their views, lifestyle and aspirations.
- Ensure that clients develop personal competencies and do not develop unhealthy dependencies on the coaching relationship.
- Evaluate the outcomes of the process, using objective measures wherever possible to ensure the relationship is successful and the client is achieving their personal goals.

- Work within their area of personal competence.? Possess qualifications and experience in the areas that skills-transfer coaching is offered.

What is a Life Purpose? (Children-Adult)
What is a Life Purpose? The word purpose means to have intentional results.
When we are on purpose, we are making a conscious effort to be or create
something. Usually what we really want to be or do seems out of reach, "impossible."
But we must remember that the word "impossible" with an apostrophe is
actually I'm (I am) possible. And you are!A
clearly defined life purpose provides meaning, direction, and significance.
Your life purpose answers two essential questions: Who do I want to be? &
What do I want to do? When we are living from our true soul's purpose, we feel
more alive---filled with excitement, joy, and inner peace---in a word
"contentment." We are more connected to one another as human beings
and more content with who we are and what we do. When we are "on
purpose" we tap into a higher power, we have supernatural support! The
best things in life seem to be naturally attracted to us. When we are not on
purpose, we try to do it all alone! 5 Steps to Discovering Your Soul Life Purpose 1. Awakening This is
step where you awaken to the fact that you have a bigger game to play in life?a
unique personal and professional purpose. If you are awakening, you are
beginning to notice a restlessness in your soul, you may be having trouble
sleeping, getting intuitive messages, having symbolic dreams. 2. Awareness This
is the step where you become aware that you need to find out exactly what your
life purposes are. If you are becoming aware, you are wanting to find out more
about what else there is to life, desiring more fulfillment and meaning, and
feeling more awake about who you really are. 3. Acceptance This is the step
where you accept your life purposes and come to terms with what it means to you
and the world. If you are in acceptance, you are beginning to embrace the idea
that your life has purpose, realizing it is your job to be it and do it, and
wanting to find out how. 4. Articulating This is the step where you articulate
your life purposes by putting them into words. If you are articulating, you are
putting in words what it is that you are meant to be and do, starting to share
it with others, and getting excited about it. 5. Acting This is the step where
you take action by moving towards the fulfillment of your life purposes If you
are taking action, you have begun making major personal and professional life
changes that are more in alignment with who you are and what you are meant to

and managing anger and stress.

Relationship coaching takes the personal aspects of life coaching a step
further by focusing on the purposeful creation of meaningful and fulfilling
relationships based on individual qualities, desires and preferences.
Relationship Coaching is completely different from analytical approaches such
as counseling, therapy or psychiatric help.
One of the most important questions of relationship coaching is
"what do you want your relationship to be like?? Or in other words what do
you want to get out of your relationships, what kind of experiences would you
like to have. In essence coaching is about getting you there - as a coach I
will provide you with the understanding, tools and awareness to achieve your
vision. In many cases I will also challenge your existing views or behaviors if
they are likely to prevent you from reaching your goals. You may also
experience things you have never experienced before.
The ADD coach offers support, guidance, and accountability, so that things actually happen! ADD coach knows ADD from the inside out - -
they "get-it." ADD coaches
base their work on a fundamental understanding
of how the ADD brain works. ADD presents some degree of deficit with
concentration, memory, and regulating action. The result is often a set of
day-to-day challenges that block one's ability to build the life they want -
problem areas that block progress.But
there are the ADD strengths as well, abilities such as: problem
solving and imagination, creativity and love of learning, energy and passion,
sensitivity to others, verbal abilities, humor and curiosity, diversity of
interests, hyper focus and persistence. ADD coach uses three powerful toolsto help manifest one's strengths to the demands of daily life. Collaboration, Knowledge, and Action. ADD Coach works with the individual in three areas:1)
strategies to neutralize areas of challenge; 2) Action plans to manifest strengths and interests; 3) Support systems to foster confidence,
balance, and action. The essenceof coaching is the power of collaboration:
working with others who have the expertise andunderstandingone need for change. It's a partnership to bring out your best.
You learn new ways to solve problems and move life forward. The primary work of an AD/HD coach is to
empower clients to speak, negotiate and better manage for themselves. Toward that
end, there will be many occasions where, in helping the client achieve success,
information would best be conveyed and strategies planned in cooperation with
other individuals living and working with the client. In adult coaching,
professional collaborations occur with the express written permission of the
client. These collaborations are for the purpose of providing first-hand
communication of details, information, assessments or observations, as well as,
for establishing or fine-tuning goals, strategies and resources.
Peak Performance /Mental Skills
Trainer (Sports Hypnosis)
Peak Performance depends upon many factors. Some of the basic
factors are motivation, the ability to attain and maintain concentrations,
emotional stability and confidence. There may also be specific factors
relating to particular vocations such as interpersonal skills, multitasking,
mental flexibility, etc. One useful way
of looking at work performance is to recognize that all factors related to our
achieving our best performance are mediated by our brains. All sports performance
depends, in part, on mental skills: the right level of "active
relaxation," positive concentration, intuition, imagination, and total
focus on the here and now, shutting out everything else.
Educational Therapy/ Skill
Educational therapy is an intensive educational
intervention beyond what tutoring can provide. Students with learning
challenges, or learning disabilities, including dyslexia, require educational
therapy with a specialist trained in addressing learning disabilities.
Often, a student may be identified by a teacher,
psychologist, speech and language specialist or school personnel as being a
struggling learner. Otherwise, students who have:
Difficulty with maintaining
concentration on a task (Attention Deficit Disorder),
Delay in learning language,
Problems paying attention,
Low self esteem regarding school
performance and may be resistant to going to school, or participating in the
normal childhood activities, or
To take an extreme amount of time
and parent support to get homework tasks done.
We build the student?s awareness of his or her learning
style and teach learning skills to assist the student in becoming a more
independent learner. In this way, the student can use his or her strengths
to best overcome or compensate for areas of weakness.
We each came here to discover the truth about what we are,
to feel the abundant freedom of inner peace. Within us lie the answers to every
issue or problem we face in our lives. Frequently however, those answers are
clouded by thoughts, fears, worries or illusionary goals and ambitions. Spiritual Development is the enrichment of one?s
personal spiritual beliefs through many different means, such as meditation,
prayer, and enlightenment. We Awaken your spirit, Develop and trust

happy and can bring you a new sense of pleasure.
